It gives me great pleasure to have done this Guest post for dear friend, Janaki Nagaraj’s blog, Memoirs of a Homemaker today. Janaki is a person I have known virtually for quite some time till I met her in Bangalore a couple of years back. What stood out for me about her apart from her exceptional beauty is the quiet strength she emanates. Always polite and helpful to a fault, she is a fun and warm person. She goes out of her way to be nice to people and to be accommodating. She is as genuine, sensitive and wonderful when you meet her in real life. How she does it is beyond me, but I am happy to belong to her list of friends (especially with her Bollywood contacts ;-)). Truly has been wonderful knowing her and seeing her writing evolve and mature. She recently got published in an anthology of poems. Do read her blog for lovely poetry and some wonderful posts. Here is the post I did for her:
When you can’t let go!
Meena climbed the stairs and reached her first floor apartment. Her friend, Vivaan, accompanied her. He felt her tense as she fished for the apartment keys in her purse. She asked him to wait while she gingerly opened the door.
Meena was scared. Was he going to be upset yet again? How will his mood be? Of late, his temper tantrums were getting increasingly difficult to bear so much so that it was not safe to have him around strangers.
Meena still remembered fondly when Tony came in her life. It was certainly the happiest day of her life though her parents were not so much in favor of it. Read more here.
